The Vikings used their 7th round (213th overall) selection on former Penn State TE Mickey Shuler.
In 2009, Shuler recorded 11 receptions for 89 yards and 2 TDs. Throughout his 3-year career, the 6-4, 251-pounder has compiled 27 receptions for 300 yards and 4 TDs. Shuler also has good football bloodlines with his father having played in the NFL as a TE.
Here is the NFL.com analysis of Shuler: “Shuler has good speed and prototypical size and bulk. Releases clean and runs precise routes. Heady player that finds holes in zone coverage. Goes over the middle and makes difficult catches in traffic. Takes good blocking angles and finishes. Has inconsistent hands and will drop catchable balls. Lacks explosiveness and is not much of a threat to gain extra yards after the catch. Struggles to get separation out of breaks and takes too long to reach top speed.”
